Anna is 56 year old woman who lives in a residential care home because she developed early-onset Alzheimer’s a few years ago and her daughter can no longer care for her at home, as her arthritis has also become more severe and she struggles to do basic things by herself now as it can become very painful for her to move at all at a moment’s notice.

He is very short tempered and doesn’t have much patience for her. He looks at her almost as a possession, something that makes him look good. As stated in the novel, "You are burnt beyond recognition”, he added, looking at his wife as one looks at a valuable piece of personal property which has suffered some damage" (pg. 4) To him, she’s just something he owns and has to take care of, nothing more.

The unknown narrator represents everyman going through stages of shock and grief.

Not everybody on welfare is a lazy, promiscuous parasite. Take for example a family of five, where both the mother and father work forty hours a week, but collect food stamps. A single father of three, whose job search has become long and unsuccessful, gets welfare. A disabled single mother of one, who has been laid off for 3 months, also gets welfare. None of the examples I have used are people who are lazy, just sitting at home waiting for the government to fill up their EBT card, and promiscuous, just having more babies with the idea that the government will help take care of them.
